Are there architecture programs for high school students?

I'm a junior in high school and I'm really interested in architecture. Do you guys know of any programs or summer opportunities I could look into to get some experience in the field?

Absolutely, there are definitely architecture programs for high school students! Many universities and organizations offer summer architecture programs or workshops to introduce high school students to the field. These programs typically include hands-on projects, lectures, and exposure to various design tools and software. Some even offer college credit.

I suggest researching universities with strong architecture programs, such as Cornell, Syracuse, or Columbia, as they often offer summer pre-college architecture programs. Additionally, consider looking into opportunities with organizations like Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program, which provides mentorship and hands-on experiences for high school students interested in those fields.

Also check out summer programs in the field, which you can use to gain knowledge and experience. CollegeVine has a list of such programs here: https://blog.collegevine.com/high-school-architecture-summer-programs

Make sure to check the application deadlines for each program and whether any scholarships or financial aid are available. Summer programs can fill up quickly, so it's a good idea to start planning early. Best of luck exploring your passion for architecture!
